Ani Ma'amin … - I believe …


"Ani ma'amin (a) be'Emunah Shlemah …

These are the first words of the Rambam's (Maimonides', 1135 - 1204) "13 Principles of Faith". The Rambam states that the key to successful Torah study is the conviction that it was divinely given at Sinai. Men must accept the Creator and the Torah content and laws.

- I believe with complete faith that the entire Torah now in our hands is the same one that was given to Moshe, our teacher, peace be upon him.

- I believe with complete faith that this Torah will not be exchanged, nor will there be another Torah from the Creator, Blessed be His name.
